Neuschwanstein Castle postscript

After we said goodbye to Sammy and Nora, Carol and I went on a tour of Neuschwanstein Castle.
Photography is not allowed inside the castle. I saw a few people sneaking shots with their cells phones, but I don't roll that way. All my photos are of the outside.
Here's the view from the castle grounds - spectacular!
We left the castle and hiked to St Mary's Bridge, where we took more pictures of the castle.
Then it was time to head back down the hill. I was sorely tempted to pay for another ride on the carriage, but Carol was having none of it. She was right, but still... We took a hiking trail down to the parking lot. It was beautiful, and we were able to catch glimpses of the horses between the trees.
We reached the road, and a horse trailer drove by us. I said, "Wouldn't it be great if that stopped right here in front of us."

And then it did!

Carol wasn't willing to pay for a second carriage ride, but she stood there with me as we watched the driver unload both of his horses. She's a good friend.
I look forward to being on the other side of this. I can not wait to enjoy horsey adventures with my friends again.


  1. I am supposed to go there in Oct, but with the whole Corvid 19 crisis, I'm thinking it will be cancelled until we have a vaccine. So bummed. The Piber stud farm was also on the tour. Oh well, life happens. Hopefully next year.

  2. I could almost see the Breyer Georg standing next to that trailer. Thanks for showing photos from your cool to see horses around the world.

  3. You seem to have had all kinds of good horse luck on this trip!
